Zlatan Ibrahimovic and family swap Manchester hotels on day one in England

Moving homes can be a stressful experience, even for multi-millionaires with more cash than they know what to do with.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his family are currently experiencing this - not for the first time in their lives - following their move to Manchester from Paris.

The Swedes are still looking for a permanent home in England and are currently residing at the five-star Lowry Hotel in Salford - or, at least, that was supposed to be the plan.

Zlatan and family checked in at the plush hotel on Monday but, according to the Mirror, left hours later for another lavish hotel, The Raddison, “looking pretty miserable”.

The British paper add that Helena Sager, Zlatan’s partner, “looked sour faced” as she switched hotels - but whether the family were unhappy with conditions in the Lowry is unclear.

The Mirror asked the Lowry about their exit and were told by the hotel they had “no comment”.

Will Zlatan bump into Pep at The Raddison?

The Raddison is a favourite amongst the Manchester City employees, so let’s hope Pep Guardiola has already found himself and his family a place to live in the city.

Zlatan and Guardiola famously fell out during their time working together at Barcelona and haven’t exactly been complimentary about each other in the press since.

Zlatan could make United debut this weekend

Staff at the Raddison were photographed wheeling Zlatan’s football gear into the new hotel.

The striker trained with his new teammates for the first time on Monday and could make his first appearance for the Red Devils against Galatasaray in Gothenburg on Sunday night.

Zlatan will then make his Old Trafford bow in Wayne Rooney’s testimonial against Everton on August 3, before taking on Premier League champions Leicester City in the Community Shield four days later.

Zlatan has already caused a stir in Manchester

The charismatic 34-year-old has only been in England for five minutes but has already managed to cause something of a stir with his demand to wear the No. 9 shirt.

United apparently didn’t consult Anthony Martial, who was handed the No. 11 shirt instead, leading to rumours the French forward was unhappy about the decision.

That Martial’s ex-wife, Samantha, liked Zlatan’s Instagram post hardly helped matters - although a United fan who claims he recently spoke with the 20-year-old told reporters he wasn’t bothered about being moved from nine to eleven.
